More lies from Dictator Bainimarama and Fiji Sun!

The illegal regime is deceiving the nation again and using the US Embassy in Suva to do it.

In recent days the military junta has blamed the Embassy for trying to confuse people regarding an anti-Baini march that was supposedly planned for Sukuna Park on Friday.

Over the weekend, the regime roped in the Fiji Sun to aide and abet it in its crime. The paper published a story saying the illegally appointed Foreign Affairs Minister, Inoke Kubuabola, had summoned the US Ambassador, Steve McGann, on Friday to explain his decision to listen to an annonymous blog and refuse visas to three of its ministers, two weeks earlier.

Today, the self-appointed prime minister, Frank Bainimarama, has 'appeared' again in a Fiji Sun story suggesting McGann's future is in doubt under the sub-heading "What Should I Do? PM Asks the Public."

The story goes on to quote Bainimarama as thus: “I have been told to send him (McGann) home because he is not doing his job well and because of the way he has been acting against Fiji,” Commodore Bainimarama told the Fiji SUN.

“But I am leaving it to the public and I am open to suggestions on what people think should be done to him before a decision is made.”

Coupfourpointfive has acquired a press statement from the US Embassy, which clearly dispels the lies the regime and the Sun have been hawking.

The US Embassy statement is diplomatic and does not call Baini and his cohorts the liars they are. But read between the lines and you can tell the Embassy is saying that there is no way McGann could have been summoned by Kubuabola - because he has been in Washington since December the 5th!

More to come. Meanwhile, the US Embassy statement that proves the 'summons' is a fallacy:

Ambassador McGann departed Fiji on December 5th for previously scheduled annual leave and consultations in the United States.

While in Washington, Ambassador McGann is holding discussions with U.S. officials on issues of continuing concern between our two nations in the context of our policy of increased engagement with Fiji and in appreciation of Fiji’s support in international forums.

Ambassador McGann looks forward to personally briefing Prime Minister Bainimarama on the outcome of his consultations in Washington upon his return to Fiji.

  1. you know, if wikileaks ever publishes cables from the US Embassy here back to DC, i bet it will be replete with words like: incompetent, paranoid, idiot, shameless, corrupt, two-faced, dictator, dictator's lap dog, murderers, cowardly military force, no brains, shit-heads,
    @$$ h0L3$, bum boys, yes men and the list goes on...it would make for very interesting reading..

  2. the United States Ambassador to Fiji, Steven McGann, was summoned to a meeting with Foreign Affairs officials in Fiji on Saturday.

    The discussions followed the cancellation of Fiji’s annual Coalition of Human Rights march on Friday.

    Fiji’s Information Ministry said the cancellation was because of a baseless advisory to American citizens from the embassy claiming that assembled groups may become unruly.

    This diplomat tensions come barely two weeks after a government minister, the Chief Justice and a senior official were denied entry into the United States.

    The Fiji Sun newspaper quotes the interim Prime Minister, Commodore Frank Bainimarama as saying the warning over the march indicates that the US Government is not committed to its assurance of assisting Fiji.

    He said the US Government was slowly following the bullying tactics used by the New Zealand and Australian governments.

  7. Instead of trying to send the US Amb home & asking the people of Fiji for endorsement (which in the first place is way out of line), why don't he ask the people of Fiji what they think of him??? Or may be he should just help himself to RESIGN NOW AND EXIT before it is too late?

  10. Pacific Media @3.58 I see RNZI and everyone who believed the Sun have not corrected its mistake and said that Steven McGann did not meet Kubuabola. Sloppy.
